“Bad” Word for the week of 12/7-14/14

My “bad” word for this week is “predict.”  Why when someone “predicts” is it bad?  Because it may or may not be true.   The dictionary states that the word, “predict” means, “to say in advance what one believes will happen.”  But first, even before we say it, we THINK it!  One example of predicting is, thinking we know what someone is thinking, feeling, or how they will behave.  Such as, “He or she hasn’t called because they have a lot going on, or they are working.”  We really have no idea!  I am exploring my own communication/behaviors, how they make me feel, and where they originated.  I challenge you to explore yours!
